COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course aims to answer questions surrounding security measures or how to evaluate the current cybersecurity posture. The course will provide guidelines to assist organizations in the development, selection, and identification of the data to be captured and show how this information can be used to compute a cybersecurity indicator of risk. You will be able to generate a cybersecurity indicator of risk with respect to a specific organization. The purpose of the cybersecurity indicator is to allow for the evaluation of the level of cybersecurity competency at a particular point in time of an organization and, when this process is repeated at other points in time, it allows the status of an organization’s cybersecurity programs progress over time to be determined.

This course is intended to help organizations that implement or operate a portion of the global infrastructure of information and communication technologies to evaluate their own cybersecurity capabilities and calculate their cybersecurity indicator of risk. After the course, you will be able to facilitate the decision-making process within organizations on improving cybersecurity and lowering cybersecurity risks. Furthermore, these guidelines provide an indication of where organizations could/should invest resources to improve their cybersecurity.
